Reserving IP Address in LAN setup reboots WIFI

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Not sure if known issue but happens every time.

In LAN setup

Click Add

Select Client

Click Apply

Whilst waiting for it to be added, WIFI goes down and devices lose connectivity.

On latest firmware, not prepared to revert back to earlier versions, reset to defaults and setting up again is a pain.

if it’s known, will it be fixed in next release?

Hey, welcome to the forum!

It lets you know when you click apply that devices will be disconnected while this applies. So I'd suggest you make all your static IPs prior to clicking apply.

Thanks for response and advising this is how it has been designed. Just seems strange that reserving an ip causes all devices to disconnect, not sure of the logic.

Hi Fraser  - that would make sense if all devices disconnect but appears to be only WiFi, wired remain connected. 

That's probably because wired devices can reconnect faster than wireless devices.

We'll look into why this is happening. I'm not actually certain if it's expected behaviour or not.

All Netgear routers Ive ever had do this in DHCP reservation so the devices pick up the new IP straight away and the router flushes the old  IP is my guess also because its writing this to ram/flash not sure one, but basically its rebooting your Lan and adding new information and Mac addresses and device names. Just add each one then press apply at the end after adding them all not after each one and it will just do it once.
